"Jet Pilot" as written by and Jay Farrar....
Jet pilot for the day
Washed his sins away
Loves to see the Rangers play
His daddy has a job in Washington
Wants to raise a Harvard son

Junior liked to let his hair down
Only trouble is, word gets around

Revolution will be televised
Across living rooms
And the great divide
Robbing barren ghettos
For us now
Everybody needs a hunting ground

Jet Pilot flown away
Got a passing grade
Made it to the world stage
A hemisphere away
Death is on display
The sins would never wash away

Junior liked to let his hair down
Only trouble is, word gets around

Revolution will be televised
Across living rooms
And the great divide
Robbing barren ghettos
For us now
Everybody needs a hunting ground

Junior liked to let his hair down
Only trouble is, word gets around

    General CommentIt's totally about George W. Bush.

    His father had a job in Washington, "Junior" owned the Texas Rangers, was a "jet pilot" (but only did the bare minimum -- if that), got "gentleman's C's" in school (Harvard, among others), started a war "a hemisphere away", and when he was younger allegedly did a lot of drugs and admits to heavy drinking (letting his hair down) -- in politics, word gets around.
